We are afraid of losing what we have.

-Paulo Coelho
Paulo Coelho

I will be capable of loving, regardless of whether I am loved in return, Of giving, when I have nothing, Of working happily, even in the midst of difficulties, Of holding out my hand, even when utterly alone and abandoned, Of drying my tears, even while I weep, Of believing, even when no one believes in me.

Paulo Coelho
I am surprised how difficult for people is to say "I love you". They only say the three magic words when they are sure they will hear "I love you too" back. C'mon! Spread the energy of love without expecting anything! Cowards are incapable of expressing love; it is the prerogative of the brave
Paulo Coelho

Feelings form part of a world in which time, space and frontiers do not exist.

Paulo Coelho
The pain of yesterday is the strength of today.
Paulo Coelho

Sometimes, certain of God's blessings arrive by shattering all the windows. (Brida)

Paulo Coelho
Don’t expect to get anything back, don’t expect recognition for your efforts, don’t expect your genius to be discovered or your love to be understood. Act because you need to act
Paulo Coelho

I'm not doing anything, and yet I'm also doing the most important thing a man can do: I'm listening to what I needed to hear from myself.

Paulo Coelho
I walk every day, and I look at the mountains and the fields and the small city, and I say: 'Oh my God, what a blessing.' Then you realise it's important to put it in a context beyond this woman, this man, this city, this country, this universe.
Paulo Coelho

Travel is not about money, it's about courage.

Paulo Coelho
A Warrior knows that his best teachers are the people whom he shares the battlefield.
